Last few outings have been taxing with strong winds - Saturday we thought better of it, after 16 miles 40-50mph gusts were too much.
Today a little better, although still blustery westerlies - i.e. headwind for us. At least we'll have a good tailwind on the way home we thought. No such luck! Wind had eased as we headed east & home from Belsay, but with a few blustery squalls to sting the legs in the last 10 miles till home.
Good outing though, great weather apart from the wind, and Adam's first 50+ miler of the year. All set now for the "French Revilution" sportive in Calais next week.
